Downsview, for the week of December 11th, we are thrilled to honour two students as your Students of the Week. Aiham E. and Amran H., both of the ninth grade, are our recipients.

It must be noted that winning this award is a distinct, singular honour. We are in the fortunate position of having many nominees, and occasionally honouring two students allows us to best celebrate success. Make no mistake, though, Aiham and Amran, you are each worthy recipients.

Let’s start with some words of praise, first, from Mr do Carmo: “Amran is in my grade 9 Exploring Technologies course, I think. Just kidding, I know she is. At least in my class, she has a quiet and unassuming personality. She asks questions to clarify instructions and is always polite. Her work is always completed excellently and on time. Keep up the great work, Amran.”

And, from Ms Peeren: "I’ve had the pleasure of teaching Amran and Aiham for three months. Their consistent participation in class, commitment to producing high-quality work, and passion for helping with extracurricular activities is commendable. In the classroom, Amran and Aiham work hard on all of their assignments and are always willing to lend a helping hand to others. During the Black Brilliance conference, they always looked for ways to help and rallied their peers as well. I can’t wait to see what else they do at Downsview!"

From Ms de Jersey: “Getting involved is vital to the high school experience. Amran knows this. When we Walked for the Bot in late October, she was so much fun. She knew what she was walking for, and she dug into the experience, rallying other walkers and enjoying the day. And Aiham, your contribution to that December 6th announcement was meaningful and moving. I am so glad that you’re both part of the DSS community.”

And finally, from Ms Persaud: “Aiham is a determined grade 9 student. He works hard and strives to do his best. His support as a volunteer for the Black Brilliance Conference is one example of how hard he is willing to work to get a job done. In addition to his work ethic, he is a great team player and helps his peers whenever possible. Aiham it has been a pleasure to have you in my class! Congratulations on your achievement!

Amran is a hardworking student. She always strives to do her best and is willing to take on additional challenges when asked. In addition, she works well in groups and even though she hates to deliver presentations, she faces the challenge head on. Amran, you're a pleasure to have in my class and I look forward to all your future accomplishments!”

Aiham, Amran, you heard it here. Your efforts in and outside the classroom are being noticed. We are fortunate to have you both at Downsview and we are thrilled that you are both our Students of the Week.
